5 Reasons to change your Geyser/Water Heater

With the coming of winters, all essential appliances used in winters should be checked whether they are
working properly or not

So, with this, you should check your geyser too which is the most necessary appliance to be used throughout the
winter season by all the members of your family.

There are few signs which will tell you that its time to buy a new geyser rather than repairing the old one again
and again.

How to know that its time to replace your old geyser?

Also, there must be some of you thinking to get your geyser repaired and use them for a few more years. But let me tell you that this is not at all wise because, in the long run, it might lead to any mishappening or disaster if not taken care of right now.

5 Reasons to change your Geyser/Water Heater

So we have suggested a few signs which indicate that the time has come to change your old geyser and buy a new one. These signs are:

1) Heating of water:

If your geyser is not able to heat water as much as it is required to then get your geyser’s heating element checked with an electrician. This can also be due to the improper functioning of the thermostat.

If your geyser is not very old, then it can be easily repaired. But if it is quite old then I recommend you to buy a
new one rather than getting it repaired as it is outdated and its original parts will not be easily available.

2) Leakage of water:

If your geyser is an old one then its body must be of metal. As these geysers heat and cool the metallic parts inside also expand and contract due to heating, which leads to cracks and gaps.

So this happened over the years and now due to the cracks, water starts leaking through these cracks. So this water leakage is very unsafe which can lead to any kind of electrical shock and create any mishappening.

3). Rust Formation:

If your geyser is an old one and is of the metallic body then it definitely tends to rust formation around its pipes and valves.

So, if you see the hot water contains traces of rust then its sure that the inner body of the geyser has an accumulation of rust.

This rust formation cannot be avoided and rectified. So, this indicates you to change your geyser rather than spending money and electricians fooling you by telling that they will remove the rust by opening the entire body.

4). Noisy geyser:

If your geyser is old and is emitting some kind of noise during the heating process then it is another indication for you to change the geyser rather than getting it repaired.

Over past years, as the geysers work continuously, water sediments get collected within it. With this accumulation of water sediments, the inner parts start functioning improperly and produce unusual sounds.

Get it checked with an electrician and if the sound persists, then there is no other option other than to replace the old geyser.

5). How old is your geyser?

This is the main factor that will clearly tell you if any of the 4 above signs are to be seen in your geyser.
Generally, an electrical appliance has a life of 10 years at the most.

But some of the old geysers can last for more years, say 20-25 years. If something goes wrong then it is recommended to change rather than getting it repaired.

But in the case of gas heaters, it is recommended to change it every 6-7 years.
